This is the very first time you can see some image samples taken with the new Nokton 42,5mm f/0.95 lens. Here are the links to the three images. Please be aware that the photographer made the mistake to write 25mm instead of 42,5mm on the title. He will correct it soon :)
F/0.95: http://bbs.kakaku.com/bbs/K0000145739/SortID=15702607/ImageID=1443875/
F/1.4: http://bbs.kakaku.com/bbs/K0000145739/SortID=15702607/ImageID=1443878/
F/2.0: http://bbs.kakaku.com/bbs/K0000145739/SortID=15702607/ImageID=1443881/

So…what do you think? Is it good enough for you?

Still no info about the availability of the lens. Save this search on Slidoo to be notified when the lens will be available for preorder on eBay.

Thanks Nanoka for sharing the links!

Panasonic displays the 42,5mm and 150mm MFT lens prototypes at CP+

Share

DC.watch (translation here) posted these pictures of the Panasonic lens masp with the two future lens included. There is no info about price and exact release date. Only little curiosity is that the 42,5mm f/1.2 actually got a 43mm mark on the lens. Yeah I know, nothing worth to be mentioned. I would be one of the potential buyers for the 42,5mm lens. But I hope Panasonic will not exaggerate with the price. It’s always difficult to compare lenses but the Canon 85mmf /1.2 has a 2000 Euro/Dollar price tag (eBay price here). I hope the price is somewhere between $1000 and $1200. If it’s higher I would go for the cheap Olympus 45mm f/1.8 instead.
